Hello friends!

I am late this month but I actually have a valid excuse this time!  My job went from 12 hours a week to 40ish hours a week so my time for anything has been cut.  I haven't officially accepted the job so I am going to give it a go for a month or so then decide if a full time job will work for our family.  So far so good though!

Now on to the orts!
Pretty skimpy :(

I had one finish this month.  Deborah Donkey by Brooke`s Books.  Only 1 to go!

Hannah Lynn by Heaven and Earth Designs.  My goal was to add 600 and I added 1507!  I know I won`t get that many in again this month but I am going to try for 900 or a page finish.  Whatever comes first.

Rudolph Reindeer by Brooke`s Books.  My goal was to finish him and I am very close so my goal will remain the same.

Spring Sampler by The Frosted Pumpkins.  I had no goal for this but I did manage to finish the second row.  My goal for this will be to finish the block I am stitching on right now.

April from The Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries.  My goal was to finish the bunny and I only got his bottom half stitched.  New goal is to finish this.

Manger Ornament by Alessandra Adelaide.  My goal was to add 200 stitches and I added 210.  I am going to keep my goal at 200 stitches.

So for all that stitching I managed to finish stitching another planet for the Semi Sane Stitches Facebook group.

I also received a couple badges from The Ultimate Cross Stitch Group for completing some SALs.

And another from the Semi Sane Stitches.  This one was a SAL where each letter in your name had a value so a=10, b=20 and so on.  And then you doubled your number... I had to stitch 2260... and they all had to be on Hannah Lynn, which is why I made such great progress on her.

And a few pictures of my boys.  Tom turned 6 this past month and here he is opening gifts at his party.  Just a little excited :)

Here is Bray at the Heritage Fair at his school.  His grade had to take in an artifact that had to do with their family history.  He chose to take a cream can that came from his great grandparents farm.  They would take the cream to the creamery once a week and to keep it cold between trips they would keep the can in the brook.

So I guess that is it for me.  I have to work in the morning so I best head off to bed.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stitching!
